Yes I kept them for the last two pregnancies. I have photos of the tests from my grown children, 21 and 24. Back then the tests were not sticks. I'd have to stash a cup of blue urine for all these years. Not practical. Prefer the sticks that go in my drawer!

Hi Melissa.

I too kept all each of mine, but usually only until they faded! HA! I didn't realize, at first, that with time, some of the tests will fade so that you can no longer see the lines.

This time around I photographed the positive HPT and actually created a scrapbooked page about the experience of discovering for the 8th time that we were pregnant...and praying that we would have a 3rd child.

I think I still have mine in the drawer, but after all it's too big to put into the baby book, so I guess I'll be tossing it sooner or later.
